Drivers can expect some road work on the bridges leading to the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry for the next two months.

The Virginia Department of Transportation started work July 1 on the wharf bridges in Surry and Jamestown for the ferries, the agency wrote on Twitter.

Flagging operations will be overnight between 7:30 p.m. and 4:30 a.m., but some brief lane closures will happen in between ferry departures and arrivals.

There will be “little to no impact” to ferry traffic, according to the Twitter post.

The closures will happen Monday through Thursday.
